An application for first-principles calculation based on density functional theory (DFT) optimized for X-ray spectroscopy analysis. Theoretical prediction and data fitting for X-ray spectroscopy such as XANES(X-ray absorption fine structure), XMCD(X-ray magnetic circular dichroism), RXD(resonant X-ray diffraction) can be preformes. This application employs a fully relativistic LSDA calculation based on the finite element method, and also supports the LDA+U method and the TD-DFT calculation.
The fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method can efficiently do quantum-mechanical calculations of large molecular systems by splitting the whole system into small fragments. The FMO program is distributed within quantum-chemical program suite GAMESS-US. FMO can provide various information regarding the structure and function of biopolymers, such as the interaction between a protein and a ligand.
An application for the Rietveld analysis used in X-ray and neutron diffraction experiments. This application determines lattice constants and atomic coordinates from X-ray and neutron diffraction data on powder samples. It supports Windows and Linux. For Windows version, graphical user interface (GUI) named WinPLOTR can be used.
An application for structure prediction based on the genetic algorithm. This application can predict the structure and composition of stable phase of crystals, molecules, atomic clusters, and so on by using first-principles calculation and molecular dynamics. This application implements interfaces with various programs such as VASP, LAMMPS, MOPAC, GULP, JDFTx, etc, and runs efficiently on parallel computing architectures.
An application for analysis of extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) based on the multiple scattering theory. This application implements relativistic self-consistent calculation using the muffin-tin approximation to evaluate atomic phase shift including effect of neighboring atoms.
